Beautiful views

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful views from the lanai! Gorgeous gardens. Loved the orchids rooted to the trees! Stunning sunsets! Clean condo and well stocked with awesome ninja blender, spices, and of course beach going supplies (cooler, chairs, etc.). Also supplied was laundry soap, dish soap, toilet paper and paper towel.

It is an older condo and we were challenged by the constant clicking of the bedroom fan that we needed to keep on through the night as the position of the air conditioner was right at our heads and couldn’t withstand it on while laying down unless we blocked it with a suitcase.

The screen doors need some tlc as they are very rickety and would often come off the track.

The beach chairs could also use replacing, we bought one and left it.

Lovely sense of community at the koa lagoon.

Nice condo with a walkout and a beautiful view. Dated but clean. Couldn’t get the TVs to work. Close to many attractions. Quiet building. Great for couples.

Excellent waterfront condo in a friendly, quiet setting

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our 10-day stay. Nice condo with a walkout lanai on immaculate grounds. Paddle-boarding right off the beach over pristine coral reefs full of turtles. The beach is not ideal for swimming but we still used it to cool off a lot. This is a nice retreat from the busy Kihei commercial area where most accommodation is located. Kitchen is well-equipped with decent appliances, ice maker and an excellent Ninja blender/ food processor for the important things in life. No sign of ants or any other unwanted visitors. Ed, the groundsman, cleaned the nice new Weber BBQ's every second day. The condo is air-conditioned with a couple of window shakers but we didn't find it necessary to turn them on. Our only complaint is the old-school king bed - it was OK, but due for an upgrade. Wi-fi and TV, room safe are excellent amenities. This was our fourth trip to Maui - this condo will be our new go-to place from now on.

Great stay for couples!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time to Maui, so naturally was concerned about location and such. Kihei is an excellent central location, allowing a traveler to go anywhere on the island. What’s more, Koa Lagoon is perfectly situated in Kihei. We loved the ground floor location which allowed us to walk right out to the beach across that cushiony lawn that you see in the photo. My wife also enjoyed the pool area while I was away at meetings. We were able to enjoy sunset nightly either on the lanai or walk on down to the sand. The condo is fully equipped in the kitchen - which we really didn’t use much except for breakfast and lunch - and the grills are very accessible. The owner, Tammy, has proven to be wonderful to work with and is quick to respond to messaging. There was only one negative review I found, and this was written in October. Tammy assured me these concerns had been addressed, and we found none of the issues mentioned in the review. I would definitely book this location again. Thanks for everything, Tammy.
